're going to have on january 31st we'll have chuck hagel's confirmation hearing at the armed services committee. hillary clinton's long farewell. how is it shaping up? what can we read into the big decisions that the president has made? >> well, clearly the president especially with the announcements today, is filling out his team. the team that's going to carry him through to the second term, and it's also -- the first term was all about the folks that were close to the president personally, folks who worked with him in chicago, folks that worked with him in his senate office, on the presidential campaign trail, and this go-round it appears that the president is appointing people who are close to him philosophically, idealogically, from a policy point of view, and so that's why you see someone like senator kerry who, as you've reported many times, has undertaken many missions on behalf of the president. some public. some not so public. >> think senator hagel will get the nod. >> you've been following this very closely. elizabeth, in covering the pentagon, what is the mood at the pent
is not an option. >> what about chuck hagel and talk about concern of supporters that he is not strongly enough a supporter of israel. he tried to a swage that and met with jewish groups. what is your sense as to chuck hagel as defense secretary? >> israel will also respect the senior administration officials nominated by president obama and confirmed by congress. i have not personally met senator hagel, but the deputy foreign minster met frequently with senator hagel who understands the partnership between the united states and israel and the support is in america's interest. i have worked with two sec tears of defense and i agree with what our minster of defense said. the defense relationships between the u.s. and israel are better than ever and i have confidence that relationship will continue to strengthen and grow. >> thank you very much. israel's ambassador to the united states. we'll be right back. the wing and a fractured beak. surgery was successful, but he will be in a cast until it is fully healed, possibly several months. so, if the duck isn't able to work, how will he pay for his l
's going to have to be what they are going to do if they are going to talk about chuck hagel is highlight the the obama's failures in this area and talk about chuck hagel is going to be yes man for that strategy. if they are not able to do that in a hearing like this which they have been pressing for four months it does not bode well. >> paul: what about her overall tenure at state? is there anything you can point to fall of qaddafi, that's now taken a negative term. there was an arm's control deal withe russia. you were not enamored of, as i recall. overall, what's her legacy? i mean, she is one of the most traveled secretaries of state. she did the public diplomacy part of her job to her credit well. she was sort of a very famous figure who went to many countries, in terms of her influence on obama policy or much less any sort of achievement it is impossible, at least to me to point to anything. what was even more remarkable about those hearings is that she sounded very hawkish on america musted lead in north africa. why must fight the spreading -- >> can'tus leave a vacuum fille. that'
gynecologic cancer. and get the inside knowledge. >>> well, chuck hagel is making the rounds on capitol hill trying to win over support for his nomination as defense secretary. today he met with senator john mccain who has been a vocal critic of the obama administration. late this afternoon mccain said he and hagel had a frank and candid conversation in which they discussed some of mccain's concerns. mccain also called hagel an old friend. it's worth remembering both men are veterans of the vietnam war and that's certainly a band of brothers. we'll be right back. hey, our salads.

has nominated senator, former seven for chuck hagel of nebraskaa vietnam combat veteran now to replace him. but hagel has been outspoken in the criticism of his party and he may have some difficulty with his confirmation. the other major depature from the cap net, secretary of the treasury tim geithner who over saw the bail out of the auto industry and recovery of the financial system. the president now nominated jack lew to the job, he was a behind the scenes guy, director of the office of management and budget, both in this administration and that of president clinton. that nomination is expected to go smoothly, but there is one high profile and sometimes controversial cabinet member who is staying on. that is attorney general eric holder. he's come under fire from republicans and some of the democrats in congress, some of the justice department policies, particularly a plan to send guns in to mexico. but holder wants to stay and the president clearly intends to allow him to do that. of course, there will somebody other cabinet and senior staff changes soon, but many of the same clos

secretary, the new secretary of state. and, of course, confirming chuck hagel as the new secretary of defense. there's beyonce, who did such a magnificent job with the national anthem just a few moments ago. john dickerson is our cbs news political director, and he is down there with, we, the people, on the national mall. john? >> scott, normally presidents in these speeches, they take history and they bring it onstage so they can attach their agenda to it. as we've talked about, in his first speech barack obama mentioned concord, gettysburg, normandy. that history has been replaced with the civil rights history and the agenda is more in keeping with that. he talked about immigration, climate change, gun control, these are all items that when republicans i've been e-mailing with hear this, they hear the return of big government, and also they heard in his speech when the president said support for those new deal programs, make us -- they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risk that make this country great. that is code language from the campaign in which re
'll be important to them when they deal, for instance with the hagel nomination. so it was score one for hillary and i think it was an attempt to build on that and move beyond it and talk about her legacy as a whole rather than that event. >> chris: i want to pick up on that, brit. because, during the hearing, what struck me was the republicans were tough on hillary, on benghazi and the democrats weren't. but, both sides kept on saying what a great secretary of state she had been and to praise her service. and here's some of the points that have been brought up, some of her accomplishments. she helped assemble the bombing campaign in libya, to topple muammar qaddafi. she helped assembly the coalition that imposed the toughest sanctions ever on iran. and, she established diplomatic ties with burma. question, brit: how do you rate hillary clinton's performance, record as our top diplomat. >> i think those examples you cited would add up to a case for her competence. they do not add up to a case for greatness, after all, the groundwork on burma had been done by the previous administration and, the
-- if as many predict that defense secretary spot will be occupied by chuck hagel, then why start him out with any kind of controversy just get it done. give him a clean start. >> bill: right. theory is, the joint chiefs in a letter to the secretary said "the time has come to rescind the direct combat exclusion rule for women and to eliminate all unnecessary gender-based barriers to service." that's what the generals are saying. your thoughts on combat, lifting the ban on women serving in combat. it's going to happen a little bit later today. 1-866-55-press. talking with lynn sweet washington bureau chief of the "chicago sun times." speaking of women in combat, secretary of state hillary clinton, i just want to play, dan, the one clip when this summed it up. she was attacked by rand paul and john mccain and by ron johnson of wisconsin which is very tough very patient. ron johnson finally got under her skin and she fired back. >> again, we were misledsh there were supposedly protests and something sprang out of that. an assault sprang out of that. that was easily ascertained that that was
of state, john kerry, and chuck hagel, which he has gone a lot of flak for it, to the secretary of defense? >> those are promising choices. john kerry may finally liberate himself with a push from chuck a goal. they are going to have to take on the military-industrial complex and reduce those mass of weapons systems that were designed for a soviet-peristyle hostility like the f-22 and nuclear subs. they're going have to cut the military budget down from its $800 billion, and get out of afghanistan and iraq. and whether they have the chemistry and the political fortitude to do so, it remains to be seen. but i think they are a better choice than their predecessors. i think john kerry will be better than hillary clinton, who had to be macho all the time. and panetta, chuck hagel will be better than panetta, who was kind of a fill in. and spent weekends back in california where he really wants to retire. there is a little promise there. but again, it requires the resurgence of mass demonstrations in washington this spring to develop a convergent policy from the militarization of foreign-policy
, and chuck hagel seems to be okay with sequestrati sequestration, there's a lot of questions in the military and we need bold leaders who are going to set a straight course and focus on fighting and winning wars is what we're compelled to do. >> megyn: thank you for indulging me, as somebody who has never put on a uniform. didn't have the other side here today so i appreciate it. >> no problem. >> megyn: all the best. thanks for your service. up next, growing concerns that american ingenuity is being sold to one of the country's top competitors. and china could get their hands on designs for military application. so...how'd it go? well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taught you all that? oh, and he says to say (translated from cantonese) "you still owe him five bucks." your accent needs a little work. starts with arthritis pain and a choice. take tylenol or take aleve, the #1 recommended pain reliever by orthopedic doctors. just two aleve
secretary of the treasury. rand cia chief as well as -- >> chuck hagel. >> you wanted to jump in? >> i guess i could come down in the middle of all of you. i agree with everyone. i think it was liberal speech as well. we talked about fdr all these things have to be seen in context. certainly barack obama is coming to the perhaps end of the reagan revolution compared to what we have had in the past. it was ringing endorsement. selectivism in a way takes on the notion of the takers, that whole idea very ideological. >> what else did you hear that was -- you were talking about thomas jefferson, what other reference did you hear? >> references to lincoln, he uses the declaration -- lincoln's appropriation of the declaration to talk about how we as a nation have to come together. i was very struck by this notion of unionism. these united states of america, not america's one nation but the notion that people coming together and by doing all of those kinds of things i think he is forcing this issue. >> actually looking at jay-z and paul ryan. beyonce and paul, just don't get this together.
